I'm not the crazed veggie gardener y'all think I am. I couple of years ago I built my first potato condo, on an idea from the shiba guyz. So really it is their idea, not mine. Any way, I just received my Irish Eyes seed catalog, and on page 17, there was my potato condo. It is also online with great instructions as how to make your own. The only difference I can see between mine and theirs is they use a soaker hose coiled up in the condo/planter, and I never saw the need as it doesn't get scorching hot here. But it is something I will try in mine this year. P.S. My potato condo has a new resident, I am growing rhubarb in it now, but will make a new condo!
